Just a reminder that there are no lessons this week as it’s half term.
Happy New Year everyone! Our new term will start on January 7th , running through to March 25th but with no class on February 18th. Same time, same place – see you there!
Next week, December 10th, will be the last session of term and we’ll mark it with an informal concert and session at the Trade Union Club. Please invite your friends and family – we’ll meet as usual at 7:15 for a quick rehearsal, and then play some tunes for our audience at 8. After that we’ll retire downstairs for a session. Rather than selling tickets, I suggest we take a collection at the end which will then go to a local charity for the homeless. There may even be a raffle! Hurrah!
In preparation for our appearance at Ealing Country Dance Club, I’ve pulling some tunes out of the archive – I’ll recap these over the next couple of weeks, developing chord sequences, harmonies and the like. In addition to the tunes we’ve learned this term, I’ve chosen:
and also Soldier’s Joy, which I’ll film and post later in the week.
More to come!
Here’s a flyer for an old time workshop, dance and concert coming up in Richmond on Saturday 10th November.
On October 15th, special guest tutor Beth Gifford will take the class. Beth is a fantastic viola player and singer and an experienced teacher, so this promises to be a great session!
The following week, October 22nd, there will be no class, as it’s half term. Be good, and I’ll see you all on October 29th, perhaps with something extra spooky to play….
